Morgan goes to After School Care at Color Wheel everyday. The teachers are wonderful. Today, the director called me because Morgan had a bruise on her chin and was crying and complaining of mouth and head pain. I was already on my way to Color Wheel to pick up the girls.
When I got to Color Wheel, I tried not to look panicked when I saw her chin. I was imagining a little bruise - maybe pinkie fingernail size - at most. Instead, I saw this:
Granted, not life threatening, but more than I expected. I took her straight to Urgent Care where they x-rayed her chin. Luckily, everything was fine - traumatic, but fine. It's swollen and sore, but nothing structurally wrong.
Here's my confusion - why didn't Dutchtown Primary call me when this happened? Morgan said she fell in the classroom. Her teacher sent her to the office, the office gave her ice and she went back to class. I went through every page of the Student Handbook tonight, and it never discusses school accidents/incident reports or parent notification. Did a school nurse assess the situation and decide there was no need to call me? Was a school nurse even involved?
I'm probably overreacting (I should probably take more medicine...), but I'm still concerned at the lackadaisical response of the school. I have to sleep on this (or rather not sleep a wink) and figure out if I need to pursue this. Any thoughts?
